Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2005
Excellent recipe. We're Scots, and this was truly the best scone I have made - better than the recipe from home. Mother was mildly skeptical about the sour cream but these are moist and tender. The only addition I will make in the future is a wee bit of lemon or orange peel to enhance the currants. We thank you!!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
Everyone loved these - quite foolproof. Did cut the butter in half that I put on the dough after it was rolled out. Thank you!!

Crab Crusted Grouper

Reviewed: May 8, 2005
Quite good. Used grated parmesean w/plain bread crumbs. Substituted crushed red pepper flakes for jalapeno. Cooked according to directions except broiled for last 7 minutes. Husband says "make again!".

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
Substituted canola oil for veg oil. Added extra spices, a bit of wheat bran, currants instead of raisins, and some coconut. Very good - best bran muffin I have made. These are great for a husband who tends to skip breakfast - much healthier choice than stopping for a doughnut! I pack a few in sm freezer bags and pull out a bag as needed.

Henry and Maudie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
Agree that sugar needs reduced. I also added spices - taste is good but they are a pain to get off the baking sheet due to softness when they're hot. I'll probably stick with my previous recipe.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
YEAH - A WINNER! I added 2 squares melted semisweet chocolate as the teenagers around here like their chocolate dark - it was truly great. Even the snotty 17 yr old who cringes at veggies scarfed this down. Would make a great potluck or picnic dessert.

Rhinelander Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
Excellent. I was generous on the portions of potato, onion, celery, and carrot. Used canned beef broth over bouillon - just adjusted water accordingly. Served w/the Whole Wheat Beer Bread from this site - best lentil soup I have had. Thank you!

Black Bean Cigars

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
Very good. Made a few changes: substituted one can Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles instead of chopped tomato and chili powder, one small yellow onion chopped, and added 1 c. whole kernel corn. Used dry beans that I soaked in hot water per pkg directions (cheaper). Covered w/can of enchilada sauce and grated mexican blend cheese for last 10 minutes of baking. Great meatless source of protein.

Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Everyone loved this. My only change: soaked the fruit in rum, then drizzled about 1/3 c brandy over the cake just prior to storage. Stored for 2 weeks wrapped in waxed paper in a tin in my fruit cellar. This will change everyone's mind about the dreaded fruitcake.

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Just "OK" for our family - husband liked it well enough but I found that I pitched the last third of the loaf. Maybe we're not big eggnog fans? Won't make it again - too many other better quick bread recipes out there.

Ham and Bean Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Great way to use leftover ham. My only change: substituted 2 cans vegetable broth (low salt)for some of the water and doubled up the vegetables. Even the teenagers ate this. Cooked on simmer all day - thickened nicely. Froze well.

Slow Cooker Lancaster County Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
My husband ate HALF of this - he LOVED it! The whole family dug in...the pork fell apart with a fork. Added the onion and a couple of diced Macintosh apples per other reviews. Served w/mashed potatoes. Excellent results w/almost zero effort.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Good - everyone enjoyed this. However, I have made Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie I from this site and, while it takes more effort, the results are superior. This gives a good result for the minimal effort.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Good. Substituted sherry for the white wine, added cream cheese as per other reviews. Husband really liked it. It was fine for me. I will make again, maybe adding a bit more sherry.

Carrot Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
This yielded excellent results. I skipped the cream cheese center (hubby has prostate cancer so I eliminate dairy fats as much as possible). Still turned out great. I was very generous in my measurements of carrot and pineapple. Added a dash of nutmeg, handful of ground walnuts. I bet with the cream cheese these are awesome but feel free to skip that part to reduce fat - you'll still get a terrific muffin.

Get-Well Custard

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
Taste was quite good but I almost had to double the baking time suggested. At 60 minutes, it was absolutely not set; baked an additional 45 minutes. Otherwise, a fine basic custard and a good way to use up some extra eggs.

Dried Cherry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
OK - as written these would be bland. I doubled the recipe, added 1 tsp each almond and cherry extracts, and gave it a chance. Very good muffins and I enjoyed the different flavor. Froze well. The extracts really gave these the boost they needed.

Dale's Lamb

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
Husband loved it. Marinaded overnight and then tossed it under the broiler. I also added rosemary. I am not a fan of lamb but I had to admit this was a good marinade. I will make this again.

Creamy Artichoke Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
I know this has received great reviews and I was hopeful, but this just seemed to fall short of my expectations; flavor seemed weak. I used marinated artichokes, fresh oregano from the garden. Also added fresh Italian parsley, a splash of white wine - still seemed like something was missing. A little better the second day when reheated for lunch but, in my opinion, not a keeper. Maybe someone will have s suggestion as to how I could perk this up - seems like a good base sauce, but again, just not a homerun.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Really good - not "over the top" but a good solid recipe. As per other reviews I used 1 c granulated sugar and 1 c. brown sugar. Used 2 1/2 c unbleached flour, 1/2 c whole wheat flour. I also added a bit of grated lemon peel and a few handfuls of raisins. Baked 55 minutes. Very good.
